Tumblers from the Vault consists of all the material recorded by canadian experimental trio Syrinx in the early 1970s: their two instrumental albums, Syrinx (1970) and Long Lost Relatives (1971), a few singles and a live recording.
The musicians behind Syrinx were composer and keyboardist John Mills-Cockell (one of the first, along with Wendy Carlos and Suzanne Ciani, to get a Moog from its creator in 1968), saxophonist Doug Pringle and percussionist Alan Wells. Their trippy music oscillates between psychedelic jazz-rock and electronic explorations.
